Delivering AWS Cloud Insights “Up The Chain”

As heavy AWS cloud growth continues, both DevOps teams and leadership must find a way to achieve deep observability and create a unified, holistic view of their infrastructure that actually offers values to the entire business.

Public cloud usage continues to grow every day. Even in the aftermath of organization’s fast-tracking their digital transformation plans over the last couple of years to meet work-from-home demand, experts still expect to see a growth in public cloud adoption of up to 23% this year.

However, all of this adoption and growth of public cloud platforms has only created a breeding ground of cloud chaos. 

Where organizations once used to slowly migrate their data or methodically and manually set up new servers, tech teams across multiple departments can now spin up new environments or assets in a matter of minutes, piling more and more assets on top of their environment that may not have the monitoring capabilities in place to keep up. Before you know it, you can no longer get your arms around all of your assets and you can't mentally keep track of what assets live where or what you've decommissioned. Even DevOps professionals who are in the weeds of it all on a daily basis need a third-party tool to keep up.

It’s no secret that as heavy AWS cloud growth continues, organizations must somehow find a way to see across all these layers and achieve deep observability.

But what many cloud tools fail to realize is that observability isn’t just reserved for DevOps. Deep observability into your AWS cloud should extend all the way up the chain to business leaders in order to create a unified, holistic view of your infrastructure that actually offers values to the entire business.

The Benefit of Up-The-Chain Cloud Observability

Having clear observability into your public cloud can bring value both up-the-chain and horizontally across different teams. This is because, as with any kind of business resource, different data and metrics can deliver actionable insights to the different people at different times. 

For example, if a new code change causes an issue that affects user experience, observability provides customer experience teams visibility into what happened so they can determine where the issue stems from or if it was expected behavior—and give technical teams time to fix the root cause before users notice any problems.

And when it comes to showcasing value vertically “to the business,” deep observability into your AWS cloud is both practical and strategic to share with leadership teams. It can lead to more confidence in DevOps practices, more investment into cloud infrastructure, smarter justification of cloud costs, and real-time status into your compliance and security stance.

Plus, with insight into the goings-on of DevOps, your team will no longer need to convince stakeholders of the business case for investment. Your DevOps unit can now surge ahead with your plans, with the vision, confidence, and support you need to deliver success.

How Tenacity Enhances Business-Wide Observability

Tenacity not only provides full AWS cloud observability to DevOps teams who are looking to interrogate and monitor their cloud infrastructure in real-time, but it also helps deliver clear insight and context to “the business” on what is happening within your cloud environment at any given moment, including interrogating your security, compliance, and savings status.

Our platform also offers role-based access to different account levels, so you can focus user access and functionality of your Tenacity dashboard to different roles — such as billing, compliance, or engineering — so users can hyper-focus on the data that is helpful, rather than being tossed into the weeds of your environment.

In a world of cloud chaos and confusion, Tenacity delivers clarity to users from DevOps to leadership by identifying and prioritizing the cloud data you want with business-level context, so you can actually get a grip on your cloud once and for all.
